I like the idea that we can all pick the same riders. We all take 4 from the top 15(cq-ranking), 5 from 16 to 40, 5 from 41 to 80, 5 from 81-130  and 6 from the rest. So we all have 25 riders and use the same format as in our current game. Now we can all have our favorites. Because we still need the different types of riders in our teams the teams should be quite different.

This way it dont matter howmany will join, all riders are available to everybody.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think plenty of those games already exist. I don't usually invest my time in non-revolutionary projects :P

Modified option.

Just a different take.


Contract Cycling League

Select 30 Riders per team
X number of Teams (Depends on interest)
Uses current spreadsheet format, scoring and race calendar.
Draft or Auction? TBD

Year 1
First 5 rounds (if Draft) or selections (by each team) are automatically signed to a 3 year contract. Riders 6 through 30 (if draft) or selections are signed to a 1 year contract.

Year 2
You have 5 riders under contract from year 1.
You may re-sign up to 5 of your riders who have expiring contracts to new contracts from 1-3 years. (This allows you to keep your top riders throughout their careers.)
You fill the balance of your team with NeoPro riders signing each to a contract of 1 - 3 years as you select them in the draft or auction.

Year 3 and onward.
You have riders under contract. You may re-sign up to 5 of your riders who have expiring contracts to new contracts from 1-3 years. You fill the balance of your team with NeoPro riders signing each to a contract of 1 - 3 years as you select them in the draft or auction.

Trades allowed.

A bit similar to our current league, no?
If I understand correctly, the main difference is keeping some riders forever.

Similar but with 1-3 year contracts, and the ability to re-sign up to five riders riders each year. No drops. Works best as a snake draft.

Perhaps not different enough from the current league. :toth:

I like the simple idea of a league where we have a snake draft and mae our teams that way.

Itīs easy and simple, but still fun.

 :iatp:

But just to mix it up a bit, you could have 'prime rounds' in the draft - like cycling crit's have prime("preem") laps - where you'd sign riders on 2 year 'prime' contracts. These rounds could be based on prime numbers. 

The prime numbers between 1 and 30 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29 - so if we have 30 man teams this would result in;

Year 1 - 30 rounds, 10 'prime' contracts.
Year 2 - 20 rounds, 8 'prime' contracts.
Year 3 onwards - 22 rounds, 8 'prime' contracts.

All riders on the same value contract so no budget to get confused with, but it requires more thought than a straightforward draft.


p.s. I have given this idea less than an hours thought, so if there's a major flaw don't be afraid to tell me.  :toth:
